This is the conversion course for graduates in subjects other than law who intend to become solicitors or barristers. It is recognised by the Law Society and the Bar Council as satisfying the requirements of the Academic Stage of Training.
Applicants should normally possess an Honours degree in any subject other than law. Applicants without a first degree but with appropriate work experience will be considered.
Law Graduate Diploma Part-time (GDL/CPE)
The GDL begins with an induction programme, introducing the principal features of the English Legal System, developing legal research skills and demonstrating the role of information technology in the study of the law. Students then study and submit assessed assignments and sit examinations in the seven prescribed Foundation subjects: Criminal Law, Equity and the Law of Trusts, Property Law, Public Law, European Community Law, The Law of Contract (Obligations I) and The Law of Tort (Obligations II). As stipulated by the Law Society and the Bar Council, students will also be introduced to an additional area of legal study and be required to submit a longer piece of assessed written coursework relating to that area. Students who successfully complete all the GDL assessments at their first sitting will be offered a place on the De Montfort Law School Legal Practice Course (LPC).
